Hey, I used to work for sun on solaris :) Actually, I won't worry about
it for now. It is fairly common to have gnu tools available on solaris
machines, if it comes up again, I'll look into making an autoconf macro
to find a working find or complain appropriately. It is only relevant
for people compiling from the darcs repository and not the tarball so it
isn't a huge issue.

case, I can work around missing it at the cost of some wasted memory.
